Dublin will host four 2020 UEFA European Football Championship matches.
The Aviva Stadium will be the venue for the three group games and single round-of-sixteen tie.
The tournament, which will feature 24 national sides, will have its semi-finals and final hosted by Wembley Stadium, London.
FAI Chief Executive John Delaney thanked Michel Platini and UEFA for the decision to award games to Dublin:
"In 2020 the Association will be entering its 100th year and this once-off opportunity to host part of the European finals at our home stadium will provide a major boost for Irish football and the country as a whole.
"We could not have done it on our own and I thank our partners, Dublin City Council, the Government and all of the organisations who put in tremendous work to win it for Ireland."
